We grow by suffering.

by VanityAtItsBest

I hate when people say that, too much pseudo-science and New Age ideologies are floating around and causing people to think that their suffering is a product of manifestation that somehow, their “soul” has made a contract with before coming to earth. If you believe in that new age shit, or even Christianity, all of it is filled with lies & hypocrisy. “You create your won reality” my ass, bio centrism doesn’t prove shit.

You create whatever are the results of your choices and actions. But none of us have a chance to choose the preexisting conditions of our genetic manifestations or birth environments or families.

People like to say: “life is what you make it” (because it’s so simple it must be true, right?…)

But really, we are more what life makes us, than life is whatever we’re able to do with it.

And if you argue that with a new-ager, you’ll get something like criticism for “playing the victim of circumstance.” I find that new-agers are typically privileged types, who have never had the opportunity to experience true hardship, or any scenario which makes it impossible for them to get something they want, or at least an acceptable substitute.

2 million years ago, one of my ancient ancestors was a primate, probably living in a cave, or possibly living in the trees. I didn’t get to choose to be related to that primate. I bet if that primate got eaten by a saber-toothed tiger, he’d think, ‘AAAAARRRR WOO WOO WOO WOO ARRRRRR,” because he had no concept of new-age beliefs, being a primate and all.

People will always lie to you and tell you things are going to get better. They say “this pain is only temporary and you’ll come out stronger.” BS! I’ve been beaten down my entire life and no one has ever reached out to see if I was doing alright.

The realty is that some people are destined to be in misery for an eternity.
Life sucks!

You grow however the heck you want to grow. Yeh, its a choice. You can choose to “grow” or learn something from any experience in life. You can also choose not to. There are some aspects of our lives where we have no choice, that’s for sure but your attitude about those things? You always have a choice.
